On November the 22nd 2021, we are having our very first on farm ram auction. We made the change from selling privately for a few reasons. Firstly it meant less time in and out of the yards for the Rams and also us.
Secondly everyone was able to get a crack at the top sheep if they wished and also get the opportunity to view all the Rams at once.
Romdale Rams are SIL recorded, DNA tested & Eczema tested. We started dosing our rams at 0.3 and this year we have dosed at 0.45 with good results. Sires have been purchased from Awaroa & Raupuha studs. These sires having been tested & with good eczema tolerance.
All rams for sale have be tested and are free of Brucellosis.

New to Shian Stud and becoming increasingly popular. Approximately 45 rams are for sale every year. Much like the Romney with strong constitution and hardy sound feet. They have a high fertility rate, raising exceptionally high percentages of twins. Romdale is a cross between a Romney and a Perindale sheep, making it a sheep with a bit more go and cleaner around the points then say a Romney. Shian Romdales are also eczema tolerant tested, and SILS recorded.
